Novelist Haruki Murakami's alma mater is building a new library to house everything he’s donated to it.
Tokyo’s Waseda University hopes to open the Murakami Library (also called the Waseda International House of Literature) in 2021, reports Literary Hub.
The public library will contain Murakami’s archives as well as his massive record collection.
Murakami — whose works include Killing Commendatore, Norwegian Wood, and The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle — has won a number of prizes worldwide, and his work has been translated into over fifty languages.
